    I can't believe I'm saying this! I used to be a Marvel geek but DC has taken over my super hero life and Arrow has now become my new TV obsession. I'm watching season 2 and the current season on a near daily basis. Anyone just as much in love with this show as I am?!

    Season one was great, the rest was pretty bad. The following seasons just gets annoying at how repetitive the episodes are, and inconsistent with the characters abilities.

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    Hell yeah it is, man! I've seen every episode that's out. It's an amazing show! Even though some of the later episodes (SOME of them - some are AMAZING) can be worse than some in season one, the show is freaking excellent!

    I dunno what it is. Maybe it's the guy in me that wants to die a hero or maybe it's the fact that this show has perfected the Highlander/Once Upon a Time gimmick of splitting episodes between past and current events. I'm just hooked!

    lol I actually love Ladybug as well.

    My favorite super heroes in no particular order (after #1)

    The Power Rangers (RPM is still the best damn team)
    Supergirl (ZOMFG Kara is so damn adorable! I want her :D <3 )
    Arrow
    Flash
    Ladybug and Cat Noir (Need to finish watching that show)
    Sailor Moon

    I don't really watch TV, I even find myself falling out of shows I like, things just take up my time and I forget about following shows. The good thing is binge watching whenever I want. South Park for example, love the show, but after episode 3 of the current season, I didn't watch it until I read about how they had to re-write the post election episode. I was excited and caught up with the show, great thing. Weekly format is just not my thing anymore. The only constant exception I am making is Dragon Ball Super.

    So with Arrow, I never even watched the show. I bet it's okay, though I think the only CW show I'd watch is Supernatural, but that would be a trek because they're over 200 episodes in. Have you seen The Flash? How's that? I was excited to read about retired wrestler Edge being in season 2 as a villain, he's one of my favorite wrestlers, so I was interested in his role in that show. Never watched though.

    Funny you speak about retired wrestlers. Cody Rhodes is the reason why I started watching Flash. He plays a drug dealer in that show. As for Flash, it's also an enjoyable show. Flash reminds me of the spider-Man movies from the early 2ks, Arrow reminds me of what CW would have done if they got Batman and Supergirl reminds me of what a PG Power Rangers could be like. Supergirl has just enough cheese, emphasis on teamwork and heroic moral lessons that Saban should really use it as a template if he ever decided to do a PG Power Rangers series.

    I loved the Spider Man movies from that time, the first two specifically, Spider Man 3 though is, okay, not as bad as people made it out to be. Maybe I'd like The Flash then. How come the actor playing the TV Flash isn't the Justice League movie Flash? Weird.

    Season 4 was pretty horrible. I am kind of glad Season 5 is doing a whole lot better, but watching it with caution :P

    Supergirl, The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow, are the ones I am always hyped to watch. Arrow, ehhhhh, so far it's been good, but I still have Season 4 in the back of my mind.

    Ugh! Don't remind me of that lol! Unless DC is trying to be like Star Trek with a separate TV and Movie timeline, it boggles my mind why the CW stars aren't playing the same heroes in the movie. As for the Spider-Man movies from the early 2Ks, I also enjoyed them!

    Snyder said because the CW TV Flash's tone didn't fit his vision of what he wants. http://www.nydailynews.com/entertai...nsidered-grant-gustin-flash-article-1.2572225

    Edit: And they also decided to keep the universes separate.

    Keeping the Movies and TV shows separate doesn't bug me as much as the fact that Supergirl still isn't apart of the Arrowverse. I hope that CW pulls a Sonic X and figures out a way to get Barry to combine the two Earths.

    Hehe, Sonic X, that theme song is infectious. I watched that show back then, I think it might've been on CW.

    Well, we're having a crossover and stuff. For now, they're separate Earths//Universe.

    And if they do decide to bring into the arrowverse, they could use The Flash again and create a Crisis on Infinite Earths type storyline, but of course to join the universes and stuff.

    Too bad season 3 & 4 are just awful. Too much felicity nonsense. At least season 5 seems to be back on track for now at least.

    Yeah, those seasons were def Felicity & Friends, and not Arrow. I still cringed my way through those seasons, but oh god, I wanted to die.

    But I am still watching Season 5 with caution, cause I just don't trust them after what they did in those 2 seasons lol

    The foreign parts are funny in Season 3 and 5 to people who actually speak the languages spoken, that's used there in the flashbacks. At least, that's what I hear :P

    I wonder if I could make an edited version of this show. I think my wife would love it but she shys away from the violence. I'm sure I can edit out most of the gun violence lol.
